BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-galactosamine:ditrans,octacis-undecaprenyl phosphate N-acetyl-D-galactosaminephosphotransferase
Reaction(IUBMB)
UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-galactosamine + ditrans,octacis-undecaprenyl phosphate = UMP + N-acetyl-alpha-D-galactosaminyl-diphospho-ditrans,octacis-undecaprenol [RN:R10465]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-galactosamine [CPD:C00203];
ditrans,octacis-undecaprenyl phosphate [CPD:C17556]
Product
UMP [CPD:C00105];
N-acetyl-alpha-D-galactosaminyl-diphospho-ditrans,octacis-undecaprenol [CPD:C20620]
Comment
The enzyme catalyses a step in the assembly of the repeating-unit of the O-antigen of the Gram-negative bacterium Aeromonas hydrophila AH-3. The enzyme shows no activity with UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosamine (cf. EC 2.7.8.33, UDP-N-acetylglucosamine-undecaprenyl-phosphate N-acetylglucosaminephosphotransferase).
History
